Ensure Kane would sign the deal, then offer Brandon Dubinsky and a 3rd for his "rights." If they don't take it, just follow through on the offer-sheet, and trade Dubinsky to the highest bidder based on propsect/picks (I know, unpopular ideal, but follow through). Re-sign Fedotenko, Del Zotto, Stralman, and Biron. Sign Alexei Ponikarovksi for bottom-6 duties to replace Prust (will probably cost a very little bit more, but brings more offense and versatility than Prust). Pursue Whitney or take a chance on a Peter Mueller/Guillaume Latendresse type. Pursue Schultz. Sign a cheap low-risk, moderate-reward defenseman like Matt Taormina who can play 20 min/night or 7 min/night to compete for the 4/5/6/7 spot with one of Erixon/Stralman/Schultz.




While Gaborik is out:

Kane-Richards-Whitney
Kreider-Stepan-Callahan
Hagelin-Anisimov-Ponikarovksi
Boyle-Rupp-Fedotenko

Staal-Girardi
McDonagh-Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman
Del Zotto-Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman


When Gaborik returns:
Kane-Richards-Gaborik
Kreider-Stepan-Callahan
Hagelin-Anisimov-Whitney
Poinkarovski-Rupp/Boyle-Fedotenko/Boyle
Rupp/Fedotenko

Staal-Girardi
McDonagh- Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman
Del Zotto- Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman



Using this years cap (since likely won't be going up significantly once the CBA is concluded):

I'd say that'd be a very productive off-season and a top Cup favorite pick. Thoughts?
Why wouldn't Winnipeg match that offer sheet?
